Bee Colonies Growing in Michigan

The number of bee colonies in Michigan are up 50% since 2018. This is significant because for the last 20 years, the number of bee colonies in Michigan were in decline. The pollination that bees provide are necessary in order to grow many types of fruits and other foods for human consumption. “The leading cause in declining populations is believed to be exposure to pesticides, insecticides, parasites, and pathogens, as well as limited sources of nectar and pollen.” (Link)
